Arp 7 (PGC 24836) is a spiral galaxy in the constellation Hydra.[1] Redshift-independent measurements of its distance vary widely, from 5.9 Mpc to 83.7 Mpc.[3] Its morphological classification is SB(rs)bc,[3] meaning it is a barred spiral galaxy with some ring-like structure.

Arp 7 was imaged by Halton Arp and included in his Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies under the category of 'split arm' galaxies.[4] Five other galaxies are also included in this section of the atlas: Arp 8 (NGC 497), Arp 9 (NGC 2523), Arp 10 (UGC 1775), Arp 11 (UGC 717), and Arp 12 (NGC 2608).
